Having shot one with a 10-8 rear it is a must have IMO. I am hoping that Tru Glo will make TFO fronts for the M&P.

Fiber optic questions.....

I am considering doing some customizing on my MP 40 by having a Dan B. trigger job and adding some type of fiber optic front sights added. There are several to choose from but I don't know enough about them to decide which is best. The MP forum MP-Store offers the Dawson and the Hi Viz and then trijicon and Tru Glow will (hopefully) come out with one to fit the MP's soon. I really like the idea of the fiber optic sights but haven't had the opportunity to shoot a MP (or anything else) with one. What do those of you that have had experience with them, think of them and which brand would be best? Also El Cid says the 10-8 is a must have. Why? Look's a lot like the factory rear sight without the white sighting dots. :?

I believe the warren is a must have, the horizontal lines on the 10-8 are to busy.



Depending on situation for the FO. I'd choose the dawson for target, and the hiviz for CC. Reason is the hiviz is larger, and easier to see. Dawson is more precise.



That being said, I only use tritium dots on the front.

Does anyone have any comments on the durability of the FO sights? Just concerned they would break, but I have never used one so I do not know. Warren sight will be mine! Front sight I'm still debating.

Its been debated, I woln't use one although the hiviz would be VERY hard to break, but I still wouldn't use one.



I reccomend the tritium for carry at any point though.



I have had FO's bread during use. and they can break at any time.

The HiViz is a very strong design.

And, if it should break, you still have a normal post to sight with.

Where are the Trijicon front sights for sale? (Not the front+rear set, and not the S&W factory tritium front.) I looked at mp-store.com and could not find them.



Thanks!

The 10-8 is shaped such that one-hand manipulation of the gun is more easily accomplished. You can hook the rear sight on a belt or other object (ballistic shield for example) to rack the slide in a moment where your support hand isn't available.



Also, the notch on the 10-8 is a "U" rather than squared off. This draws the eye more naturally and quickly to the front post as your eye naturally wants to find the center of a circle.
